Semi-original recipe: Peach & Plum Cobbler

Why semi-original, you ask? Because I modified an existing recipe to make it vegan. I also used plums instead of the original blueberries, since I had some plums off of our tree out front! (This was exciting, as the tree hadn’t borne in years!) The peaches came from the local farmers’ market. Feel free to experiment with other fruits, depending on what’s in season and what you have available. I think this would be tasty with just about anything!  I made this for breakfast, but it would easily make a great dessert, too!

Peach & Plum Cobbler

Makes 10 servings

Ingredients:

3 Tbsp coconut oil

3 Tbsp canola oil

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup almond or soy milk

1/2 cup organic sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

3 ripe peaches, pitted and sliced

1 cup plums, pitted and chopped

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350. Place both oils in your baking dish (an iron skillet works great here, otherwise you can use a 9×11) and heat in the oven until melted, about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Add milk, sugar, and vanilla and stir to combine. Add the melted oils to the batter and stir to combine. Pour the batter into the hot baking dish. Evenly spread the fruit over the top of the batter. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until batter is completely set. Cool for 15 minutes before serving.

I don’t think I need to tell you that this won’t last long in your house.  Nutritionally, it’s quite decent….beats the heck out of an artery-clogging fruit pastry or doughnut!

  1. Hey there, awesome dietician vegan daughter-of-mine,
    How would you love to make your peach-plum cobbler for all of us in the mts.?
    I would bring spelt flour (of course) and whatever else required. What say, hmmmm. . .

  3. This vegan recipe is the best cobbler I have ever tasted. Your sister and her family agree:)
    I used spelt flour and blueberries instead of plums and sprinkled with some cinnamon,
    and wow! Food for the gods. . . I really think that using coconut oil adds to the flavor.
